In the Stormy Red Sky Lt. From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again.
David Drake is the Dean of military science fiction and author of the best-selling Hammer's Slammers series. Many writers of military SF get their background from books, but Vietnam veteran Drake has been there and done that, giving his work an unmatched gritty realism. His novels of the military exploits of the brilliant young RCN officer Daniel Leary who has gone from Lieutenant to Captain and his friend and colleague Adele Mundy, computer spy and crack shot, have been top-sellers.

Drake's RCN series features the military leader Daniel Leary and his friend Adele Mundy, librarian extraordinaire, along with a delightful, ever-expanding cast of support characters such as Daniels' family and his servant, Hogg, Adele's socially-challenged assistant Tovera, his shipmates, the incomparable Sissies, etc.
And there's usually a despicable character named Platt. The stories are all solidly grounded on some interesting historical situation, which he explains in the books' introducti Drake's RCN series features the military leader Daniel Leary and his friend Adele Mundy, librarian extraordinaire, along with a delightful, ever-expanding cast of support characters such as Daniels' family and his servant, Hogg, Adele's socially-challenged assistant Tovera, his shipmates, the incomparable Sissies, etc.
The stories are all solidly grounded on some interesting historical situation, which he explains in the books' introductions. They're well-told and exciting adventure stories that always offer some good food for thought and reflection, and the characters have depth and facets that always add a lot to the story as a whole. For example, Daniel has a deep interest in the biological sciences that he rarely has time to pursue.
The books are a lot of fun and definitely among the very best space-opera style stories that I've encountered. Aug 05, Michael rated it it was amazing. As usual this was a great read.
It had interesting characters and kept my attention from the first page to the last. I have read several of Mr. Drake's books in the last few years and I have yet to be disappointed. I met Mr. Drake and his wife at a Science Fiction convention in and he is a very interesting person to talk to as well. Oct 22, David Broussard rated it really liked it Shelves: A rollicking read that I enjoyed greatly on my iPad iBooks bought from Baen because I could use the dictionary to look up some of the archaic language that makes the books so enjoyable.
Jan 22, Dan rated it it was amazing Shelves: The best yet of this stellar series. Up RCN! Nov 06, Joe rated it really liked it. Okay, I love this one. Big space battles. Lots of deception.
In the Stormy Red Sky
Great payoff. I'm giving most of this series 3 stars, but I'll give this one 4, because I still found the story gripping on second reading, despite the increasing emphasis on military matters as the story unfolds. Yes, this series is about a space navy, and I think there's some naval combat in each book, but the amount varies. In general, the whole series is light sf, not to be taken seriously. Junior officer Daniel Leary and his somewhat older friend and colleague Adele Mundy routinely accomplish remarkable f I'm giving most of this series 3 stars, but I'll give this one 4, because I still found the story gripping on second reading, despite the increasing emphasis on military matters as the story unfolds.
Junior officer Daniel Leary and his somewhat older friend and colleague Adele Mundy routinely accomplish remarkable feats in their respective specialities; all the main characters are like exaggerated versions of real people; violence is sometimes gruesome, but it usually happens only to bad people or anonymous bystanders, and it comes and goes rather quickly. Leary's crew is permanently full of team spirit and will do anything for him or Mundy.
Oddly, what the author seems to take most seriously is the science and technology of his fictional world. He's invented his own peculiar version of hyperspace to permit faster-than-light travel, and he describes the nuts and bolts of the technology, and the details of the spaceships, as though he could see it all in front of him.
This is an impressive work of sustained imagination, which arguably deserves more realistic characterization to go with it.
Dec 27, John Davies rated it it was amazing Shelves: The seventh book in the series is more of the same for Daniel Leary and Adele Mundy. Once again, they are sent out to "remind" a world that the RCN is better than the Alliance.
As usual, the Alliance has managed to sneakily take over, and Daniel must find a way to fight and defeat them. I love this series, but even though people you have gotten to know get killed, you also know that the main characters of Daniel, Adele, Hogg and Tovera, will continue and triumph. There's a little less ground fig The seventh book in the series is more of the same for Daniel Leary and Adele Mundy. There's a little less ground fighting, and a bit more space combat in this book, and I'm happy about that.
On to the next book! Stormy Sky's This is jolly good reading! I wanted some and I got it when I started to re-read the whole series, again!! It's easy reading and great fun. Author Drake created a story and wrote the series in a fashion that invites a person to keep the books in order to relieve the tedious period in-between not reading them.
Seriously, it's what books are for, unless it's learning. Never disappoints! Another rousing tale, well written, with engaging characters. In the tradition of Horatio Hornblower and his ilk.
I hope Daniel and Adele will continue to fill my book shelves for years to come -stay healthy David Drake! Feb 06, Charles JunkChuck rated it really liked it. David Drake has written about 14 of these books, and rarely missteps in creating compelling books that are at once rip-roaring space opera adventure and nuanced socio-political novel.
This one is no different, but I must confess I'd read 'em all even if they were a lot less accomplished.
I won't summarize the plot--there's another potentially explosive situation that our heroes partly stumble but mostly storm into, proving themselves smarter, braver, and more resourceful than the baffled enemies David Drake has written about 14 of these books, and rarely missteps in creating compelling books that are at once rip-roaring space opera adventure and nuanced socio-political novel. I won't summarize the plot--there's another potentially explosive situation that our heroes partly stumble but mostly storm into, proving themselves smarter, braver, and more resourceful than the baffled enemies.
The friendship between the dashing Daniel Leary and the his damaged partner, Adele Mundy, is the core of these books, a brilliant matching of two people who by all rights should be natural enemies but who have grown to trust and rely on each other without question. They are joined by the usual cast of supporting characters, The Sissies just read the book, Drake explains it.
The interplay between our heroes and their respective sidekicks, Hogg and Tovera, are priceless. The best elements of these books are the tightly woven plots.
Drake is a consumate professional, and he drives us from plot point to plot point with efficient vigor that is too often lacking in this sub-genre, perhaps because he roughly bases the military aspects of each campaign on one or more historical events. This book in particular is so laser-precise that the ending comes almost too soon.

But the Festival Hymn struck him much the way each fresh sight of the Matrix did: But sometimes it puzzled Adele to see how very unpredictable the consequences of an event could be.
